[video clip] >> the appropriators have a tough job over the last couple of years. they have taken a lot of tough votes in their committee. so i understand the frustration that they are dealing with. but i just want to make clear -- the sequestration is going to remain in effect until the president agrees to cut some toorms that will allow us remove it. the president insisted on the sequester, and none of us wanted, none of us like it. there are smarter ways to cut spending. the house has moved twice over the last year and a half to replace the sequester. we saw no action in the united states senate. so if they want the sequester to go, we will have to get serious about our long

for watching us tonight. the state of the republican party, that's the subject of this evening's talking points memo. who remembers the famous stories about president reagan and house speaker tipp o'neal? i know i doovmentd in the public eye, they would battle each other tooth and nail. in private, however, they would grab a drink, play cards and negotiate a settlement or come up with an answer to a serious problem facing our country. now, let's move ahead about 30 years. and how would president reagan's actions be looked at by the more conservative base of our party? for the record, president reagan was one of my heros. but today would president reagan be called a rino republican in name only? i'm not sure. but i can tell it you that when members of the republican party and others looking from the outside in see the personal and attacks between the factions of the party. they're left scratching their heads and questioning whether they want to be involved at all. listen, i have been a republican in my whole adult life. a known fiscal conservative and national security hawk. new jersey governor
, a stage is set. u.s. and allies act as syria's intelligence mount. as u.s. officials said privately that a flood of previously undisclosed intelligence including satellite images and intercepted communication erased last minute administration doubt that the syrian regime used chemical weapons against its own people. military officials discussed yesterday about coordinating response in attacks against the syrian targets. and the headlines from the washington post is this, proof against bashar assad is at hand. the obama administration believe that u.s. intelligence has established how syrian government forces stored, assembled and launched chemical weapons outside of damascus that killed hundreds of people. the administration is planning to release evidence possibly tomorrow. it will prove that president bashar assad -- from the hill newspaper reaction from members of congress the headline is nearly two dozen members of congress signing on to a letter demanding that the president first consult congress. the letter was led by a republican from virginia beach. quote, engaging our milit
and more intelligence in a way that's easier to use. so making a smartphone that is aware, to some extent -- not in a human sense, but aware of its surroundings, aware of what's going on. so just today, for instance, motorola which is now owned by google is announcing a new smartphone that it says can automatically adjust its functions when it senses that it's this a moving car -- it's in a moving car, when it senses that it's in your pants pocket, you know? it'll shut down the screen and other functions to save battery because it senses it's turned down in your pocket. you can pull it out of your pocket and just by twisting your wrist it'll immediately turn the camera on even before you've unlocked the phone or pressed any button of any kind or an icon, done any swipe on the screen or anything. so those are, you know, examples of something that i think can get much bigger which is phones, tablets, wearable devices using their sensors, so gyroscopes and then new kinds of sensors that maybe can detect body heat or body function to do different things. so we have a lot of stuff going on in
snowden -- >> that's why -- >> -- a chance to respond. >> i have to say, i think it's a bad message for us to send for people who decide to take the law into their own hands they're doing a public service. >> can i think when the system has not worked. we have sued seven times to try to get the surveillance program before a proper court. we were kicked out of court. the clapper v. amnesty international where the justice department lawyer said it was a cascade of speculation when our client said we think our data has been collected by the government. and since we had no proof we'd been surveilled, we had no standing. it had not been for lack of trying, jeh johnson. >> the courts debate the law. >> and the only way we can get before the court, the only way we have standing before this court is because many snowden leaked the fact that we are clients of verizon business network. guess what? mr. snowden fixed my standing problem. and our democracy, regardless of whether or not you think he broke the law, whether he should be hauled to the fourth circuit, i think our country is better as a resu
: you can reach out to us on social media this morning. "the walle take from street journal." others have insight and background and this is from "the washington post." the larger context this morning is about the cancellation of meetings between president obama and president clinton and russia over issues. we want to -- and president vladimir putin. you can alsol -- use social media. maryland is up first on our democrat line. caller: good morning. host: what do you think about the cancellation of this meeting? caller: i think it is kind of silly because when you have problems with somebody, shouldn't you talk to them? why you cancel a meeting if you've got problems with their neighbor, you go talk to your neighbor. that the white house says because progress was made, a summit was not good at this time. that is their argument. caller: i still think you have to talk to people. host: if that's the case, talk pointwhat the discussion be and how does edward snowden complicate this? caller: that really complicate everything. host: there he is on the screen, edward it snowed in. --ginia, c
keeps e-mails sent by u.s. citizens. martha: we have heard a couple of bombshells. how is this story different? >> reporter: the program edward snowden made public called prism is detailed in this morning's "wall street journal" involve pursuant to the requisite court orders the filtering and gathering of information at the major telecoms companies generated exclusionily between and among innocent u.s. citizens. >> the nsa thinks of collection as the related review. acquisition is different from having an analyst review it and that's when the collection takes place. those bizarre definitions allow the nsa to and secure what's going on even though they are saying the right words. >> reporter: americans will be pleasantly surprised to learn that up to 25% of u.s. traffic isn't being collected by nsa. martha: that central issue he hits on whether it's a gathering or whether they take a look which the president suggested people should be concerned about this. are these major internet providers handing over the e-mails and web history to the government? >> some telecom companies are more
springs back to life. know this is kind of corny, he's going to join us live, we really mean live, this morning. we'll talk to him about that experience. >> live means a lot more for that man. >>> first let's get to the absolutely amazing and heartpounding 911 call capturing every critical moment of a horrifying school shooting. you're about to hear an amazingly composed bookkeeper trying to calm a 20-year-old man with an ak-47 on tuesday and and go shooting at police. her cool under pressure remarkable. how she finally convinces him to surrender will astound you. martin savidge is live in decatur, georgia, on this. she is amazing. martin? >> reporter: she absolutely is. good morning to you, kate, and for the first time since this drama played out the students will be back in their own classrooms today. that's certainly good news but everybody is talking about that phone call and the woman that's credited with saving hundreds of lives. take a listen. it's a remarkable call. >> i'm on second avenue in the school and the gentleman said tell the them to hold down the police officers
and one person is in custody. cnn's david mattingly is in decat decatur, georgia, joining us with the latest. what can you tell us? >> we just heard from the police chief of dekalb county, georgia. there was a single gunman described at 19 years old. he gained entry through the locked doors of the school by following someone else in. he immediately went to the school office carrying an ak-47 and some other weapons, we're told, but definitely an ak-47. from that position and after authorities arrived after initial calls, he exchanged gun fire. he fired about a half dozen shots at authorities outside the school and then authorities then returned fire. after that he gave up without incident. but it was a terribly scary time there at the school. many of the kids were taken outside. some were sheltering in place in their rooms. they are now being released back to their parents. that was a long process in itself. and what we're looking at right now is a lot of anxious parents very relieved but also very upset to find out how close this came to being a very deadly situation. no moti
're not really sure how this will affect us and what it will cost us. stuart is the host of "varney & company" on the fox business network. what do you make of this latest news? >> it is changing the work place profoundly. it is hurting lower paid people in particular. three out of four new jobs created to the household survey are part-time. that's the big shift in the work place. an now we've got cities, towns and states all across-country going to more part-time work as opposed to full-time work, because of, here comes obamacare. i have a town in new jersey, counties in texas, florida, virginia, wisconsin, all of them moving to part-time work. that is, less than 30 hours a week. even though the employer mandate, you've got to provide health care if you have more than 50 full-time employees, that's 16 months away but these cities and states, they're getting in on the act early because they face renegotiation of labor contracts. changing the work place profoundly, martha. martha: it is so true and we've heard it from some of the biggest unions themselves saying that the 40-hour work week that
. the national weather center that give us as much warning as you can give anybody about the tornadoes wouldn't be operating. so that's a pretty contentious issue. we'll also had the national debt ceiling sometime probably in mid-november. that creates not a government shutdown scenario but if you don't find a way to resolve it, sort of a, across the board 35% cut in all government agencies because you couldn't finance government. and, finally, the immigration issue has been very contentious issue. the senate has passed a bill. it's not likely to be a bill that the house will pass. the house has passed for smaller goes through committee, through judiciary committee. they have not yet come to the house floor, considering a couple of others. i think there might be a big immigration discussion late in the year. i think it will come after this government shutdown and hit the ceiling are dealt with, if at all. because the two sides are a part. it's still certainly in the mix for this year. with that, i can drone on and on but i would rather cut it off and start inching your questions. yes, sir. if
find most incredible about his story? how commonplace it is. everyone of us here has a story just like that, whether it is us or our parents or great grandparents. we are all the children of those who risked everything. for freedom. us could walk up here one at a time and tell those stories. i am going to suggest that is the most fundamental dna of what it means to be an american, to value freedom and opportunity above all else. that is why we are going to succeed in turning this around. say,inal thing i want to if you remember nothing that i said tonight, then you probably had too much to drink. [laughter] if you remember one thing that i said tonight, let it be this. as dire as things look right now, i am profoundly optimistic. we have seen things look dire before. i am optimistic for three simple reasons. number one, we are right. freedom works. [applause] there is a very simple dynamic, conservatives win when we effectively articulate what it is we believe. this is fundamentally a center- right nation. liberals win when they effectively off the skate -- obduscate what they believe.
, give us a call a 202-585-3881. our line for republicans. 202-585-3808 for democrats. and a line for independents, end us an email at journal @c-span.org or send us a tweet at c-span wj. caller: thank you very much for taking my call. i wanted to make a comment on secretary of state's press conference yesterday and the press briefing that followed. the entire tone and tenor was that somehow this was our fault. i don't understand why it is we own this problem. they have been fighting each other over there for centuries. why is it all of a sudden america's fault? and i couldn't agree more with the previous callers that say we should not give any more money to any nation that behaves this way. detroit is bankrupt. sacramento, california, is bankrupt. we have huge, huge problems over here as far as infrastructure. i think we should take care of our own. i'm a first generation american and i can tell you, these countries, we give money -- they don't share our values, they don't share our beliefs, they don't have the same respect for human life that we do. we have absolutely no busines
crime of human trafficking. in so many ways, today's a.b.a. is reminding us that although our laws must be continually updated, our shared dedication to the cause of justice and the ideals set forth by our constitution must remain constant. it is this sense of dedication that brings me to san francisco today, to enlist your partnership in forging a more just society. to ask for your leadership in reclaiming once more the values we haled hold dear. and to draw upon the a.b.a.'s legacy of achievement in calling on every member of our profession to question that which is accepted truth, to challenge that which is unjust, to break free of a tired status quo, and to take bold steps to reform and strengthen america's criminal justice system in concrete and fundamental ways. it is time to address persistent needs and unwarranted disparities by considering a fundamentally new approach. as a prosecutor, judge, and attorney in private practice, i have seen the criminal justice system firsthand in nearly every angle. while i have the jut most faith and dedication to america's legal system, we must
, again we probably would find common ground. i would also like to see us get rid of sequestration, but do it by recontributing the cuts to the nondiscretionary side of the budget where i think they belong. we need to keep the savings, that's why the deficit is coming down, but there's certainly smarter and better ways to do that. if the president is willing to do that, i suspect he would find a willing negotiating partner on our side of the aisle. in fact, though, many of my friends advocate what is effectively a third tax increase this year. we had a tax increase with the so-called fiscal cliff when all the bush tax cuts ended. the president used that to raise taxes. we have a tax increase this year associated with his health care plan kicking in that's major. now my friends on the other side of the aisle want a third tax increase, and to keep the government open and operating. we think we can spend money better and smarter, and that we ought to continue to reduce spending not increase the burdens on the american people. finally, i want to talk to my friend who discussed obamacare. she's

power. you do not believe egyptian security forces used excessive force at all? >> i cannot say that all of the police are peaceful. of course, there are some exceptions. i cannot say 100%. but i am sure that by and large they try to abide. >> reporter: so no remorse for what happened? >> when you see people dying from your side or the other you cannot say i have remorse. but you feel bad. because this is human blood. when i see egyptians fighting each other they belong to this country. they are brothers. >> reporter: despite being one of america's greatest allies, the prime minister knows the u.s. is now considering cutting off more than $1 billion in aid. what if the u.s. cuts off military aid? >> this will be a very bad sign. it will definitely affect the military for some time. but at least one of the benefit of being human you can survive. >> reporter: despite it all, the prime minister predict there will be free elections here within months. but he also acknowledged the bloodshed may not be over. martha raddatz. abc news, cairo. >>> interesting. saudi arabia is coming out saying th

a lot of expenses in front of us and right now we're just looking for her future and get her settled. >> reporter: a family hoping to help hannah adjust after she was allegedly kidnapped by her father's best friend. >> you keep hearing the term "uncle jim." he was like an uncle jim to them. >> reporter: we're still learning new information about what police discovered as dimaggio's burned down home. this newly released search warrant obtained by cnn affiliate kfmb says police discovered a handwritten note and letters from hannah. the detective say proves dimaggio had control over the house, police recovered incendiary devices leading them to believe the house fire was caused by human actions. once she was inside that fund-raiser, people inside tell us that she was much more relaxed, more comfortable, more like a normal 16-year-old girl and hannah's cousin tells us the family is trag to do their best to keep her busy like planning beach and shopping trips but it's going to be a long road toward an emotional recovery for hannah anderson. chris in. >> for casey, for right now it's all a

. michelle and i, we're only where we are today because scholarships and student loans gave us a shot at a great education. and by the way, we did have to borrow a lot of money. i didn't pay off all my student loans until right before i was elected to the u.s. senate. i was in my 40s. i was supposed to be saving more malia and sasha. i was still paying off my loans. so i know a little bit about this. the point is though in the past, we've done what was required to support the next generation succeeding because we understood if they succeed, then we'll all succeed. but we've kind of lost track of that. so when joe and i came in with the help of bob casey and others, we took some steps to help make student loans more affordable. we changed the system where student loans were going through banks and banks were making billions of dollars. we said let's just give account loans directly to students, save billions of dollars so we can give more help to more students. that's what we did. we set up a consumer watchdog to help students and their families navigate through the financial options,
